Grant access to a contact group

You can grant any people an access to any one of your Contact Groups by generating an Authentication Link. This link allows them to open the Contacts List Page and View, Add, Load, Edit and even Delete any Contacts in this Contact Group, but they are not permitted to access any other sections (for example, Contact Book or other services) in your account. You also could set a Password or a Valid Period of Time for this link for security reasons.



Step 1 - Access the button of this function:

Click on a Contact Group in the Contact Group Page. Then you'll be taken to the Contacts List Page. Click the icon on the right of footer as shown in Figure 1 to access this function.
